The Department of Astronomy in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University invites applications for a tenure- track faculty position, effective Autumn Semester 2018. We seek candidates working in the field of exoplanets or the formation of planetary systems, and we welcome applications from instrumentalists, observers, and theorists. The intended rank is Assistant Professor.
A Ph.D. and postdoctoral experience in astronomy, or a closely related field, are required, as are an outstanding research record and commitment to teaching excellence. A key strength of the department is its extraordinarily collaborative and interactive scientific atmosphere, and we seek candidates who will contribute to and benefit from that atmosphere. Appointment is contingent on the university’s verification of credentials and other information required by law and/or university policies, including but not limited to a criminal background check.
